Parent Association

Every parent at Turning Point School is an important member of the Parent Association. There are no extra dues or requirements to join – just a desire to lend time and talents in a way that is most meaningful for each individual.

There are a number of committees that parents (and even grandparents!) can join, and countless ways our school and students benefit from each parent's experience, interests, and abilities.

Annual Fund - Grade Level Representative

Turning Point relies on annual giving to help fund the projects and programs that make us the unique school we are today. The role of Grade Level Reps is to serve as philanthropic leaders and ambassadors across campus, and to help educate our community about the importance of giving.

Community Service

Liaise with faculty Community Service Coordinators to organize school-wide community service events. Help with clothing, food, and book drives during the holidays.

Garden Committee

Seeking all levels of gardeners to help plan and maintain our garden. Volunteers will rotate the care of the garden on a weekly basis.

Grandparents' Committee

There are so many ways for grandparents to get involved at Turning Point! Participate in on-campus events such as the Back-to-School Picnic, Faculty and Staff Appreciation, Book Fair, International Village, and Grandfriends’ Day, and brainstorm new ways to further engage grandparents in the life of the school.

Hoop-A-Thon Committee

This student-focused fundraiser needs many volunteers to support a wide range of activities including collecting and counting pledges, distributing prizes, coordinating lunches, and assisting our students as they shoot hoops to raise funds for Turning Point.

Literary Committee (formerly Book Fair)

Provide set-up assistance, help students make book selections, and add up purchases during our annual Book Fair.

Lost & Found Committee

Assist in collecting, organizing, and storing items lost on campus. Coordinate the return of lost items to their owners and donate unclaimed goods. [Ongoing]

PA Community Event

Help teachers with preparing materials for the classrooms and for special events while hearing from school leadership about campus updates and opportunities.

Party Book

Party Book parties are a series of year-round events hosted by parents to enhance community building across all grade levels.

Seasonal Decorating Committee

Support the annual student-led Halloween Carnival and decorate for Halloween with middle school students, and decorate our campus several times throughout the school year.

Spring Gala & Auction

Help organize the annual Spring Gala and Auction. Volunteers are needed across a variety of areas to support this meaningful event, which raises money to directly support the programs that help our students.

Teacher Appreciation Committee

Provide and host a luncheon in honor of our faculty and staff in the spring. Plan activities throughout the year, including our ever-popular Flower Day.


If you are a current Turning Point parent, you can sign up to volunteer on a committee through your Parent Portal, beginning August 20. If you have questions about our Parent Association, or are a grandparent who is interested in volunteering, please send us a note at
